A mum of two young boys who both suffer from a muscle-wasting, life-limiting disability, is feeling extremely grateful after a construction company stepped-in and donated money to help the family cope with their condition.

Last year, Leanne Witts from Clayton-Brook set up a Just Giving page to raise the essential funds needed to buy two profiling beds for her sons, Charlie and Harry, who both have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

The beds, which are specially designed adjustable units, cost around £1,500 and in January, Ms Witts and her partner Matt Busby, were left gobsmacked after two Great Harwood fundraisers donated one of the profiling beds to Charlie, seven.

The donation left Ms Witts with only one more bed to buy, and following coverage of the story in the Lancashire Telegraph, a second good samaritan jumped on board and donated enough money for the family to buy a specially designed bed for her younger son, four-year-old Harry.

Ms Witts, who has recently had to give up her job to take care of Charlie and Harry said: "We received a donation of £1000 from Barnfield Construction who are based in Nelson.

"Someone from the company contacted us not long after the article was in the paper and said they wanted to help.

"We were amazed and so grateful when they donated the money.

"It meant we were able to buy a bed for Harry, and now the boys are both in the same room together which makes it easier for me to help them with things like physio and day to day movements.

"The beds also improve their posture and help them sleep better."

Sheila Webber, Director at Barnfield Construction said that when she read about the boy's story, she knew she had to help out.

Ms Webber said: "Maybe a week or so had gone by after I'd read the article and it was at the back of my mind, so I went on the fundraising page and saw that they were quite a way off reaching their target. So I donated the necessary amount.

"I did it so that both boys could have the care they needed.

"Leanne told me of the struggle and strain on her back lifting the boys and I just wanted to help.

"It’s something I do a couple of times a year and it was a pleasure to help out for a needy cause."

Ms Witts said: "I want to say a massive thank you to Barnfield for their help, it means so much to us."
